So lots to talk about...let's see where should I start??
Well 1) I'm at home with my Beeebeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!! 2) If any mom out there right now wants to stay home I encourage you to keep saving, keep praying and keep working towards that goal. If WE can do it, you totally can!!! I'm dead serious. I don't know what it will look like for your family. It may mean selling a car, or it may be cutting out vacations or eating. Ha...I only said that because I suggested that I would stop eating lunch if I could stay home about 6 months ago. And, please please email me if you have questions about how we got it done. But, while financially we've been planning alot of it was simply waiting and praying until we heard "Yes." Because ultimately it's a step of faith moving from two incomes to one and there is only One man who knows whether it will work for your family at this time. ;) I love all my readers to pieces and pray for each and every one of you so please feel free to contact me with any questions!
2) A certain someone turned the big 2-1! Ha...don't worry I'll keep the real number secret for you honey. ;) Clara made dad this beautiful birthday card so that is what he is holding right there.
My mom and grandma surprised us with this picture of Clara (our little husker fan) that they had taken without us knowing. I decided I love gifts that are also for me on other people's birthdays...lol whoop whoop! :)
And here I am tellng my hubs about his grand finale gift.....
Tickets to the NU vs. MIZZOU game!!!
Also...this cracked me up. These two guys shared a table with us at lunch....turns out the dude on the left, well he is the dad of a guy who runs track on my cousisn's 4x4 team at UNK and the guy on the right graduted with my Aunt Debbie...seriously small world huh?? :)
Lastly...this picture will only be funny to immediate members of our family probably but I'm going to tell you all anyways...
So, long story short. The guy who lives next to my mom is crazy. Like seriously OCDish craziness. My mom's neighborhood is really nice but her neighbor...oh my gosh. He puts up tin foil in his windows just to make sure no one can see in. He doesn't talk to a soul and if he even hears the faintest barking of a dog he will call the cops and issue a noise complaint on the dog's owners.
Well, last weekend me and my mom had just put Clara down and we heard what we thought to be a gun shot coming from next door...So, I obviously did the logical thing; dressed all in black and went all mission impossible on her neighbor. Ha! No...I seriously did though.
We had a stake out set up in the upstairs where my mom could see down and I went to look around. I actually called the cops and they sent two people out which is another REALLY long story but I didn't feel they did enough so I took matters into my own hands! :)
I was seriously envisioning "Disturbia"...You know the movie where the man kills women and puts them in his vents..well that night, after the cops left, the man had his fire going ALL.Night.Long. Creepy right???
So, I waited until the next night and set up camp. As soon as his car left I ran around and snapped a picture of his porch.
Well as you can see unfortunately there was no evidence to be seen..that night. Unless those are bones in his fireplace??(I can just see Dave shaking his head right now as he's reading this lol) But he's never seen distrubia so of course he doesn't understand!!
But in closing, I will catch him and until then you are all witnesses to this story if something happens to my momma!! :)
